Karl Henry's Horror Tackle for Wolves Against Wigan: Video

Karl Henry did Wolves and Mick McCarthy no favors on Saturday when his late tackle on Jordi Gomez resulted in a straight red card and left Wolverhampton Wanderers with ten men.

In the video of the tackle (see above), you can see how Henry’s hit sent the Spaniard flying into the air. Luckily Gomez was able to recover and went on to a score a goal later in the game. But Henry’s foul could have easily resulted in a broken leg or a career-threatening injury. Why Henry tried to dispute the decision is beyond me. The referee made the correct decision without a shadow of a doubt.
